Well after a few delays and hiccups, I have received issues 1-6 with 7-10 on the way.

First impressions are positive and look like it's going to be a good build.

Pictures to follow

Well having noticed the details of issue 3 of this kit and that someone pointed out on a FarceBook group I have purchased issue 3 from the DeAgostini Mustang for a correctly detailed airfilter and rocker covers as these are virtually the same pieces.

Let the mods begin.

Hi Guys,

Been a bit lacks with this, I've not been lazy, trying to get through my stash as i have more kits on the way and need to make room!! :laughing-rolling:

I'll catch up with the issue photos soon as I am now upto issue 30.
The quality of the parts is good, except the brake discs which Eaglemoss will address soon with more detailed updates.

Till next time!

I have also ordered from a fellow forum from Russia machined brake discs that are grooved and drilled these look a lot better than the original part from eaglemoss
Other parts I am in the process of are from the DEAGOSTINI model space uk
Mustang gt500 collection
These are
3 x step # 47 for the gt500 badges
1x step # 81 left front wing
1 x step # 83 right front wing
These will be used for decal artwork and the badge for the rear end below trunk in the middle
1 x step # 3 air filter and rocker covers

Hope this helps
Thanks

I have got ~3 for the top half of the engine/air filter, O may make my own decals but it would involve a complete respray of the body. Need to get the badges but may go the 3d printed/decal route.
Need to get the dash issues from DeAgostini think it's #42 for the dash badge.

Well the collection is progressing as per usual Eaglemoss Customer service,they fail to take payment then spend a month to sort it out.
Then they send pack 14 and 15 within a week of each other and pack 14 doesn't arrive.

On a plus I got the Shelby dash to replace the Gone In 60 Seconds dash logo so will have to look at the body work when it arrives.

Pack 14 finally arrived Wednesday so back on track.

Next pack we should recieve a screwbox that was promised at the beginning but never materialized, but I'm not holding my breath!

Oh and Happy New Year to you all! :text-happynewyear:
